Trevor Baker



Trevor Baker has a background in still photography and currently works in still and motion picture. He enjoys short form pieces and is excited about new forms of distribution that make films more accesible to everyone. He enjoys making narrative films and music videos, but loves documentary work, since it allows him to experience things most people don’t get to see, and then be able to share the experience with others. His current goals are creating experimental visuals and getting to film things that are interesting in a hopefully unique way. He is currently looking to shoot video with experimental bands and journalism sources.
